Verdict from St James...

John Eustace rued the difference in finishing between Harriers last two performances after their 2-0 win over Stockport was followed by the 2-0 Tuesday night defeat at Brackley Town.

Harriers dominated for the first half and easily created the greater amount of the night’s chances.

However, so too perhaps did County when they came to Aggborough at the weekend, only to go home empty-handed at the expense of a ruthless Harriers side.

It’s no surprise, then, that Eustace was disappointed to see roles reversed at St James Park.

He commented: “I thought we were really, really good in the first half but if you don’t take your chances, you get punished.

“In the second half it was 50-50 and I’m really disappointed with the last ten minutes – we conceded two really bad goals.

“I was really pleased for 80 minutes; this is a tough place to come.

“We created some really good chances but we weren’t clinical, and you have to be if you want to do well.

“We can only keep working hard on the training field but we have scored a lot of goals this year.

“This was a big game and we had to be clinical; on Saturday we were and won the game.”

Harrier lost Elton Ngwatala in the first half with a shoulder injury.

The boss added: “I don’t have any information yet, though I have just seen him and he doesn’t look in a good way.

“I think he might be going to hospital but that’s all I know really.”
